Etymology

From Middle English sysame, sisamie, from Latin sīsamī, genitive singular of Latin sīsamum, sēsamum (compare Medieval Latin sīsaminum, Old French sisamin), from Ancient Greek σήσαμον (sḗsamon, sesame seed) and σησάμη (sēsámē, sesame plant), from Old Aramaic שושמא(šūššmā), shortening of שומשומא(šumššumā), from Akkadian ???????????????? (šamaššammū, oil plant), compound of ???????? (šaman, oil) and ???? (šammum, plant). Spelling was modified early 15c. to reflect Ancient Greek σησάμη (sēsámē).
